This is the book that started my twisted, one-sided love-afair-from-afar with Christopher Moore.
I didn't finish this precise, but what I read was quite good. Touches on just about every situation you could want about the "domestic front" during Realm Combat I - community, working girls, the wartime regulation and of course the combat's dramatic effects on the excellency of American life after 1945. Lots of look up, as is the rule with Kennedy.
Finally I finished this book. I really enjoyed it. I loved all the characters, except Drina. I look forward to read the rest of the series. Later is Bluemoon.
Very nice Noir stuff--it's easy to see how Bendis got so popular. Awesome communication, nice cynosure on the legal and grain implications of Stuntman. There are a few weak degrees--the non-chronological storytelling in the "Underboss," for instance, gets sort of confusing. But they are rather minor. This is another instance of a defender book being awesome with little "super" stuff happening. I definitely look forward to the next volume.
